So, the polling stations have just closed and now it's time to wait for the results to come in!
You can watch what's happening here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/election2010/results/

So, did you vote? How are you hoping things will pan out?

I for one made sure I voted, it's the first general election I've been able to vote in, and the first one I can vote for a big party in (there are none of the normal parties in NI). I got two votes, one in Glasgow and one for back home in Northern Ireland.

Just leave it, this isn't a thread to revolve around you.

It's about the election and what people voted. You said. Now leave it alone.

I'm not sure who I would have voted for if I were able, probably not conservative though.

I voted, wasn't sure about Labour, didn't like the Lib Dems and Conservatives I had doubts about but picked anyway. Before anyone really complains OMG TORIES its heading for a hung parliament anyway and I used my right to vote as opposed to leaving it aside. One right many people fought and died for so that we were to be able to have a choice in; was my reason for not abstaining in such a cluster-fuck of a campaign.

American, but would have definately voted for the BUF if they were still around.

Also, your home is occupied Ireland?

Out of the three seats announced all of them are Labour, hoping to have a further 53 seats announced in the next hour and a half.

I don't really know enough good about each party to know who to vote for if I was to bother, if I was old enough. If BNP or someone similar somehow comes into power, there's always the option of leaving the country if things start going badly.

HOLY CRAP, our First Minister just got beaten by the only anti-tribal party! YES! Brilliant, well done NI! It was a moment of "Wtf, did I just hear that?"xD

I didn't vote. Briefly thought about voting Lib Dem but couldn't really get my head around my natural dislike of politicians enough to support one of them.

I still sort of hope Lib Dem win, they're the only ones who haven't had a go at fucking shit up.

Lib Dems hold on to Torbay over the Tories :3

Looks like the UK's heading for a "hung parliament" with no one party getting a majority to rule on their own. Luckily, lil' ol' New Zealand has offered some guidance to the Mother Country for just such an eventuality :)

http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/europe/3663526/UK-poll-what-if-no-one-wins
The country's top civil servant, Cabinet Secretary Gus O'Donnell, has visited New Zealand, which has had a hung Parliaments for more than a decade, and civil servants have pretended to be bickering politicians in role-playing scenarios and drawn up guidelines detailing what should happen in such cases.

(Nitpick: We don't exactly consider our recent government as being in a 'hung parliament' - the mature of our proportional representation electoral system means that coalitions are now the norm rather than the exception.)
